Silent install Nero 9

I manage to discover that there are 4 types of nero 9. InstallerCategory id="2" refers to that. If you change id the seial is different.

In setup.xml find

<SequenceOrders id="SequenceOrders" child="SequenceOrder">

<SequenceOrder id="Install" child="Sequencee">

<Sequencee id="IDD_DLGWELCOME_INSTALL" child="Properties">

<Properties id="Properties">

<Prop id="SequenceOrder">1</Prop>

</Properties>

From SequenceOrder">1 to SequenceOrder">26 you have the order of instalation.

You may try to remove and see what happens.

IDD_DLGEULA removes EULA.

yes, you are right fgaifen, there are 4 types of InstallerCategory id, i tried to remove the toolbar settings in category id 2 and started the install, it crashed, so that's not a solution, i'll try to remove unit_app_75 folder from the install folders and post the results

edit: tried to remove unit_app_75 and install really skips the toolbar feature.

When installation starts, I manage to see that all files go to temp directory and 3 log files are created.

Since I don't have time to test this weak (I'm not at home) I can't remember wich log is, but one is the settings for nero 9 and, it says that deployment can be done by nero_ds.xml.

This file can be obtained in "nero lite".

If some one have a litle time can test and post here the results.

the setup.xml file is so large.

Will nero AG say something about that a manual or what?

i opened a ticket at nero 2 days ago, here is something that i found, the 4 installercategories:

2 nero9

3 moveit

4 mediahome4

5 backitup4

so the cat 2 is for the nero9 install

maybe DeploymentStatus.xml can answer some questions, later i'll look at it

I don't know to work with xml files but let me tell you what I did until now.

I suppose everybody want to install nero9 not any other version (moveit, mediahome4 or backitup4).

That means we want to install the Category ID 2 that is Nero9.

The category ID 2 info is between line 51:

<InstallerCategory id="2" child="Properties">

and line 2316

</InstallerCategory>

So from line 2317 to line 9114 we can delete everything.

Now, the command part of the nero9 is splited in 6 Sequence Orders

install, modify, remove, update, append and removeSN.

The install sequence is between line 1842and 1973

But from here I don't know what to change not to broke the installation.

Somebody was saying the file is too large, now it can have less then 1/4 from original size, maybe this will help.

:wacko:

I found and use this REG key for silent serial number installation:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nero\Shared\NL9]

"Serial9_1223681020"="SERI-ALNU-MBER-SERI-ALNU-MBER-SERI-ALNU"

Hello, sorry for my poor english...

When i don't find any switch : I use a kixtart script with SetFocus and SenKey command.

For Nero 9.0.9.4c Trial the script work fine.

I use this technic for deployed "Emile Maurin" on 120 workstations and it's work very well.

To use this kixtart script you have to modify :

the line 72 with your serial number

the line 52 for the "not trial" version

I can not test with the "not trial" version because i don't have this one.

look on my site for the code :

To all of you who wan't this i figured out that if you open unit.xml in " unit_app_* " folder's and search after " INSTALLACTION_INSTALL " and then change it to " INSTALLACTION_NONE " and in the " unit_hlp_* " folder's edit the unit.xml files again from " INSTALLACTION_INSTALL " to " INSTALLACTION_NONE " it won't be installed! and if you have a serial edit the setup.xml at the line that look's like this " <Prop id="SerialNumber"> PUT SERIAL HERE </Prop> " then you just need to find the silent switch haven't come to that yet.

Hope all you users can use this :thumbup

Good luck

PS. the * is a number if you change something in unit_app_1 the you need to change it in unit_hlp_1 too or else it install the help files to that feature/program you don't want.

Hope everyone understands how i explaine this :blink:
